We - VBIN (abbreviation for Dutch associated payment instututions, or in dutch: Verenigde Betaal Instellingen Nederland) - are a dutch association that represents the interests of payment institutions that hold a offical license from the dutch central bank.
A payments institution is a company that offers/facilitates financial transaction services like online payments, escrow solutions, prepaid (gift)cards, mobile payments, e-wallets, etc.
The logo can contain only the abbreviation (VBIN) or the abbreviation in combination with the dutch words (Verenigde Betaal Instellingen Nederland).
The purpose of the association is to represent the interests of its menbers towards formal instutions (central bank, EU) but also to comsumers whom use the services of our members. therefor we need a logo that is trustworthy but also modern (we provide financial services, but we're not like a mature bank).
